Näf marks the day Kurt Cobain's body was found when he began exploring Heathenry. Overly curious, and hopelessly optimistic Näf felt most of the first 12 years was "a waste of time". A car accident took him from a "token gesture Heathen" to renewing his methods, now he works on rebuilding the Elder Heathen worldview. Poor grammar, lazy editing, and lack of time has prevented Näf from blogging or writing much - however his drive to contribute and leave something for his kids to continue has led to him help others in his own way. Näf is the co-host of a new podcast coming called Tangentially Heathen. Näf went to school for emergency response and has worked in corrections, social work, sales and tech. Locally Näf started Nebraska Heathens United to teach the public about real Heathen values, beliefs and concepts. As well founded Flatvatn Aett a regional tribal tradition in SE Nebraska.
